The Daegmon War is a three– volume fantasy novel beginning with The Gifted , continuing with The Betrayed , and ending with The Mountain . The centuries– old war against the Daegmon Lord has been dormant for generations and knowledge of the Gifts (powers of healing, of supernatural knowledge, and of strength over demonic foes) has faded into dim folklore.
When one of the Daegmons suddenly returns to wage war against the All– Maker and his people, only one small band, led by a young Westwash woman named Elynna and an Andani hunter–guide, rises up against the terrible foe. But they are few, and only a handful of them number among the Gifted. When their own king and his armies turn against the them, all seems lost for the company. Only Thimeon’s faith in the All– Maker and in the Holy Mountain sustains the faithfulfew.
Let’s start with the book cover, when I first saw it I think that it is absolutely stunning. It gives me the Lord of the Rings vibes. Hence, a star for this.
Besides that, let’s talk about the writing, the writing was amazing and I would highly recommend this book for fans of Tolkien. The writing will make you want to read it and not stop until you know the ending.
Furthermore, The Gifted’s world building and character development are very good too. The world felt real as the author managed to explain it in great detail and will make readers understand.
Lastly, I like the main character Elynna as she has good characteristics and good character development. This book is a good fantasy read suitable for young adults and adults.
Overall, this book was a good read with 5/5 rating for me! I highly recommend this book for readers that likes fantasy books.
